CNAME Records in Shared Hosting
Setting up a CNAME record using our shared hosting plans is really simple. Our in-house built Hepsia CP includes a section dedicated to the DNS records of your domains, so you can create a new CNAME record for any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account in only a few basic steps. You can find a video tutorial in the same section in which you can see the process first-hand. This feature provides you with a variety of options - if you build a company site on our end, for example, the employees can use their e-mails with the company domain name, not with the address of our mail server. If you choose to create a site using a different provider that offers online web design services, you can easily redirect a domain hosted here and use it for the website. Last, but not least, in case you have an on-line store and you have a billing system for http://your-domain.com and/or an SSL certificate, you can create a CNAME record for the www subdomain and redirect it to the main domain address, so all your clients are going to be forwarded to a secure URL.
CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server through our company and you wish to set up a CNAME record, it will require no more than a couple of clicks to complete this task. The plans are managed using our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP where you will find a section devoted to the DNS records of the domain addresses and subdomains hosted in the account. To set up a CNAME record, you will simply have to pick the record type and the hostname (domain or subdomain), type where the latter will be pointed to and save the modification. The new record will be active almost immediately in our system and will propagate worldwide within a couple of hours. Changing or deleting an existing CNAME record within the account is equally easy and takes a click. In the event you experience any troubles, you can go through our in-depth help article, see the short video on the subject that we have added in the Control Panel, or just contact us for help.
